List-Shows!!! Favorite Shows of 2009 Pt.1

These are in no order:

Lohio/Boca Chica/Horse Or Cycle/The Harlan Twins/Mariage Blanc/Meeting Of Important People/Donora
Friday August 14
Mariage Blanc House
Mariage Blanc's Josh invited me to his party. Turns out my favorite local bands were playing. Totally cool, even though I had to duck out early and regrettably missed most of the bill.

Old 97's
Sunday June 28
Hartwood Acres
What's can be better than a free show in a beautiful park with refreshments, family, friends and one of your favorite bands? How about being allowed on stage to take photos! Thanks, Amy!

Hallelujah The Hills
Monday October 19
The Thunderbird Cafe
This band is just so great. My only complaint is that I didn't know the new songs before I saw them live.

Elliott Brood
Saturday November 28
The Thunderbird Cafe
Killer band playing a barnstorming set to close out their tour.

Donora/Lohio/The Harlan Twins
Friday November 20
Picking a favorite show among the many times I have seen these bands this year is kind of futile. They were all great.

Local Honey
Sunday March 8
Carnegie Library
What a fantastic idea. Have a band play the library. Did they hush it down for the setting? Um, hell no!

The New Pornographers
Friday April 17
CMU Lawn
Great set. Fun crowd. Ted Leo opening. Plus my man Warren set me up with a photo pass. Thanks, buddy.

Meeting Of Important People
Saturday March 28
I had a blast at their CD release show. My favorite album of the year...LIVE!

Dean & Britta
Saturday June 14
The Warhol Museum
This might be my favorite concert of the year. The show wasn't crowded which is ALWAYS a plus. The band sounded absolutely fantastic. Add the fact that this show coincided with the opening of the exhibit 'Warhol Live' (which was amazing). Seriously, what's not to love?
